Ed Krejcie is a seasoned artist and teacher of 25 years. He is currently employed in the Appleton Area School District visual arts department. He is tirelessly passionate about teaching and making art which is what makes him such a well-respected teacher and artist in the Fox Valley. While many artists are tied to a few specific media, Ed takes pride in being proficient in a variety of mediums, techniques, and styles. Media and techniques includes most painting, drawing, printing, collage, ceramics, sculpture, jewelry making, and even blacksmithing. When given the choice of style, Ed is most fond of abstract and organic creations, although symbolism and realism also reside in his wheelhouse. At home he enjoys life as a husband to his wife Karen, and as a father to his three beautiful kids. (His daughter has attended his class at SLAC twice and wants to return!) Family is a recurring theme in his artwork and family is where his love for automobiles is rooted as well. Not coincidentally, automobilia and hot rod related themes show up in his artwork as well. As if the aforementioned isn’t enough, Ed is a state licensed volunteer Emergency Medical Responder, Vice President of the Appleton Education Association, and owner of his own freelance art business.
